(Panorama) – Speaker of the Armenian parliament Ara Babloyan, who is paying visit to Canada, met on Thursday with the Speaker of the House of Commons of Canada Geoff Regan.
As the parliament press service reports, issues on the effective cooperation with Canada in different spheres and the activities of the Canadian Armenian community were discussed. The sides have underlined that about 90.000 Armenians residing in Canada have considerable contribution to the development of bilateral relations and are actively involved in different spheres of Canada’s public life.
The cooperation between the two countries within the framework of the international organizations, especially within the framework of the International Organisation of La Francophonie (IOF) referred to.
